A truck meant for muddy paths, big rocks, and steep inclines doesn't necessarily have to look out of place on more civilized pavement — and the 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Nighthawk is something to behold whether on-road or off. Finished with matte magnesium metallic paint, sporting an interior covered in cocoa Bugatti leather, and riding on 22-inch American Force Burnout wheels, this Jeep from Starwood Motors is every bit the looker. And with a 3.6-liter supercharged V6 motor, a long-arm lift kit, upgraded Terra Flex brakes, and a host of other upgrades, it's tough enough to handle even the roughest conditions. Just don't let that gorgeous paint job stop you from putting it through its paces.
Car people have gotten used to seeing things we can't have — whether it's some incredible concept vehicle, or a model that will never be available in our country — and the Ford Troller T4 is just another example of something we can see but never touch. Available only in Brazil, this is the no-frills SUV you've always wanted Ford to build for American consumers. While details on the power train are still scant, we do know that it has a 3.2-liter diesel engine and a six-speed manual transmission. It'll likely also feature a sky roof, high ground clearance for off-road use, adjustable sway bars, and more.
Forget hauling around a boat with your SUV this summer — if you're rolling in the Amphicruiser, your SUV is your boat. Handmade in the Netherlands, this amphibious off-roader is powered by a robust 4.2L Toyota Land Cruiser engine that runs the wheels on the road and an onboard water jet off of it, letting you cruise at speeds of up to 8 mph. And don't worry if you're not digging the four-door hard top look — they make a single-door convertible version, as well.
When most people think of armored vehicles, they generally think of Suburbans, Cadillacs, and other roomy, luxurious cars. And while those are certainly among the Inkas Armored Vehicles lineup, there's far more variety than you'd expect. With over two decades experience in building armored cars, Inkas offers everything from the typical SUV to the Toyota Camry, BMW 5-Series, Mercedes CLS, and other unusual options, as well as armored buses and police cruisers, with all the creature comforts you could ask for. Typical upgrades on these beasts include fuel tank protection and perimeter armoring (glass, firewall, doors, pillars, quarter panels, ballistic overlaps, rear bulkhead, etc.) that will stand up against 7.62mm, 308 Winchester FMJ ammunition, as well as a reinforced floor that can withstand blasts and shrapnel from the simultaneous detonation of two DM51 grenades.
When you think of a Jeep, small isn't usually one of the first things that comes to mind — at least until the Jeep Renegade, that is. Their first foray into the small SUV market, the Renegade still manages to deliver the same 4x4 capability you expect from a Jeep, borrowing its off-road technology from the Cherokee. With 16 different engine and transmission combinations, you can choose from four gas and two diesel engines, a nine-speed automatic, or several manual transmissions. Inside it's kitted out with a touchscreen display to control the infotainment system, advanced safety and security features, an open air roof, and more.
